Wife is cooking 21 lb bird today. Knowing who is attending we will have MASSIVE leftovers. 4 different women are making and bringing side dishes. Each gets confused and makes enough that if their dish was the ONLY side dish it would be enough. Of course there is going to be a green bean casserole. And pounds of stuffing. Mashed potatoes. I have been assigned to bring the cranberry gel thing that no one ever eats. $1.29 down the toilet.

The canned stuff, I presume.

I find it's best to use it like marmalade and smear it on some sort of bread.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I will have several helpings of cranberry jelly on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. It was sort of a family tradition in my house to only serve it on holidays.
When I was younger, we'd occasionally get dinner from Chicken Delight and they would toss in the stamp-sized containers of cranberry sauce. They were the best part of the meal.
I can't stand the stuff with pits in it, and leftover cranberry sauce is nasty unless it's on a turkey and stuffing sandwich.

On Keto, try to snack on fruit. Nuts are usually allowed -get mixed nuts or whatever. Chicken is cheap and easy. I like some fish so I ate salmon, canned tuna, etc. Salads are great for the diet, but a bit of work. Eat as much as you can stand. After 2-3 days you should start burning fat. No sustainable diet I know reduces weight as fast as keto.

Fruit mostly isnít keto, thatís paleo the way I understand it. You can basically have maybe 1/2 a cup of berries of keto a day without going over, almost all other types of fruit are a no no from the way I understood it, a big reason I couldnít stick with it. Eating one apple or banana knocks you out of ketosis.

Luckily for me, I'm not a fruit or veggie person. I love pizza, but made a crustless pizza that was almost as good, and my pastaless lasagna works for now. Losing the buns off of my cheeseburgers wasn't nearly as painful as I anticipated.
I ordered an assortment of keto snacks off Amazon and if one or two of them pan out, I don't see this diet being all that bad. Having a ribeye steak, salad, and a few prawns a couple of days a week goes a long way towards making this keto thing tolerable.
Breakfast today was three scrambled eggs with mozzarella cheese and a splash of hot sauce. Beats the heck out of NutriSystem.

Is there ANY purpose whatsoever for iceberg lettuce to continue to be grown or exist? There is almost no nutritional value whatsoever and no one is eating lettuce for the taste.

Well, when it comes to nutrition:

Kale >> Romaine Lettuce >>Iceberg Lettuce.

Iceberg lettuce is a good source of Vitamin A, and has some calcium and magnesium, which is good for bone health. It has some potassium. And its sodium-free (but so is styrofoam, lol) So, its not a complete zero when it come to nutritional value. Its low in calories, etc.

But Romaine lettuce is better, Romaine provides all the nutrients that Iceberg has but more Vitamin A, and also Romaine also has Vitamin K, and folates. Vitamin K is only available from leafy vegetables and helps with blood clotting, so its absence from iceberg is significant. Folates are a type of Vitamin B which helps produce red blood cells, but you can get folates from many other popular fruits (bananas, oranges), and from nuts, beans and other vegetables. So folate deficiency is not a big problem.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

__________


a couple of days ago we got chicken from one of the little Peruvian joints - there are several in the DC area

their chicken is very tender and they have unique spices

it crushes the competition IMHO

it's really no contest

My old neighborhood in Queens had some Peruvian chicken places, but then Columbian rotisserie chicken hit town and it virtually eliminated the Peruvian product. I'm not sure what the Columbians do differently but it taste much better hot. The strange thing is I like most chicken cold as well as hot, but the Columbian style congeals and is almost unedible after a night in the fridge.
